Death of Your Son
(In a somber tone, as mourning of the death)
I speak of the death of your Son
To you my God I give thanks.
In Him I see the reflection of you
Your love flowed through Him.
My whole heart sings your praises,
My soul is glad as I exalt you.
My children’s children shall know you,
To them I will proclaim your deeds.
You set on the throne of judgment
Your laws are righteous and true.
On my lips is a song of great praise,
Mercy and grace with you reigns.
As your Son has returned to you
Your Spirit now with us does dwell.
You are forever our comfort and guide
Your word with the Spirit is alive.
May our lips proclaim your story
May our lives reflect your glory.
